We understand that not everyone is comfortable resuming in person worship gatherings at this time. Your decision on whether to join us in person or online each Sunday should be based on a self-evaluation of the following questions:
1. Have you been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
2. Are you experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms? (cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fever in the last 48 hours, new loss of taste or smell, vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours)
3. Do you feel more vulnerable due to age, health factors, or other concerns?
If the answer to any of these is “YES,” please take advantage of our online church service.
As a church, we have been very blessed to have successfully gathered as a church without interruption since reopening in June of 2020. We attribute this blessing to the goodness of God and to common-sense measures such as social distancing, mask requirements for staff, volunteers, and students, enhanced sanitization and access limitations to our facilities, a health check-in procedure for volunteers, and the cooperation of our congregation in following these protocols.
